Police repulse terrorist attack in Bannu – SUCH TV



The Bannu police have repulsed a terrorist attack on a police pick late Wednesday night.

According to a police spokesman, unknown militants stormed the Sapina police picket in Bannu, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, with heavy weapons late at night.

The police promptly and effectively retaliated and repulsed the attack. The terrorists managed to escape while taking full advantage of the darkness.

Earlier on Wednesday Seven terrorists were killed by security forces in an intelligence-based operation (IBO) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Tank district, the military’s media affairs wing said.

A press release issued by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said security forces conducted an IBO in the general area of Kiri Machan Khel last night after receiving reports about the presence of terrorists.

“During conduct of the operation, intense fire exchange took place between own troops and terrorists as a result of which seven terrorists were sent to hell. Terrorists hideouts were also busted during the operation,” the ISPR said.

“Weapons and ammunition were also recovered from the killed terrorists who remained actively involved in numerous terrorist activities, including recent target killings of police in Tank and surrounding areas,” it added.

The ISPR said a sanitisation operation was being carried out in the area to eliminate any other militants. It further said that locals “appreciated the operation and extended their full support to the security forces in elimination of menace of terrorism”.
